Correction to Radio NZ story of 13 July 2012
The host of the 'Panel' segment of Radio New Zealand's 'Afternoons' show on 13 July 2012 incorrectly attributed criticism of retiring Whangarei Area Commander Paul Dimery to the Police Association. In fact, the criticism came from the Police Managers' Guild. The Police Association, in direct contrast, has been highly supportive of Mr Dimery speaking out.
Links to the media clips with the critical comments from the Guild's spokesperson, and the Police Association's comments in support of Mr Dimery, are on our website here.
Radio New Zealand's error has unfortunately completely misrepresented the Police Association's position and commentary on Mr Dimery's retirement, and left the incorrect impression that the organisation is critical of those who speak out. A correction has been sought from the radio station.
